Zack Wheeler (11-6 W-L, 3.7 ERA) vs. Kyle Wright (0-2 W-L, 7.48 ERA)

Zack Wheeler comes into this matchup boasting an outstanding 11-6 record and an ERA of just 3.7 over 175 innings of work, giving up only 153 hits while striking out an amazing 196 batters while maintaining an outstanding 1.07 WHIP. Wheeler’s pinpoint accuracy and ability to get ahead in counts are his greatest assets; his fastball-slider combination could prove successful against Braves batters; in particular if there are key right-handed bats present. Wheeler has excelled against right-handed bats this season – perhaps giving him an edge against them both.


Kyle Wright has experienced an up and down season with the Braves this year, posting only an 0-2 record and a dispiriting 7.48 ERA over just 21.2 innings pitched. This may raise alarm bells among Braves fans; his WHIP stands at an alarming 1.89 after surrendering 29 hits for 23 strikeouts and 12 walks while not finding his strike zone consistently, leading to increased walk rates as well as two homers given up in limited innings pitched. Opposing opponents like Phillies who hit well on road could pose difficult challenges against Wright this time around.
